  • 10 ml of liquid inoculant

  • 70% isopropyl alcohol

  • Paper towels

  • Still Airbox (SAB)

  • Laminar Flow Hood (LFH)

Package Delivery

01

Prep your space

While wearing gloves, wipe your workstation down with 70% isopropyl alcohol. Remove the bag from the box and wipe all surfaces off the back with 70% isopropyl alcohol as well. 

02

Prep your incoculate

Depending on the source of your inoculation, the following instructions may vary. 

Before unpacking your syringe, wipe down the packaging it arrived in with 70% isopropyl alcohol.

After unpacking, wipe down the syringe with 70% isopropyl alcohol. 

Attach the needle to the end of the syringe.

Use a flame (e.g., a lighter or touch) to heat up the needle until it is red. It should only take a few seconds.

Allow 30-60 seconds for the needle to cool.

03

Stab the bag

Don't actually stab the bag... stab the injection port.

If you are not working with a still box or laminar flow hood, wipe down the injection port one last time with 70% isopropyl alcohol before injection.

 

With your prepped needle, poke through the grey injection port and empty the needle into the bag.

04

Wait, what am I supposed to do now?

You got it, wait.

Depending on your genetics, your bag might prefer specific temperature ranges. Also, all genetics have different timelines for their process. Generally speaking, in 2-3 weeks, your bag should be 20-50% colonized.

Fruiting

Fruiting relies entirely on the type of genetics you inoculated the bag with. 

Feel free to contact info@everybodysmushrooms.com if you'd like further recommendations. 

05

Is it ready?

Once your bag is more than a third colonized, break up the mass of mycelium without opening it to help redistribute it thoroughly. This will help the bag finish colonizing much faster.
